Isaiah 40:8 “The Word of Our God Stands Forever”

Isaiah 40:8

“The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.”

(NLT – New Living Translation)

Reflection: 

No matter what the season, no matter what may come and go– good or bad– the one constant that outlives and outlasts is the Word of God. If God says all His creations are worthy of love, redemption, salvation, mercy, grace, compassion, and sanctification, you better believe that His promise is everlasting. Through God, the everlasting, all things are possible and within His domain.

And whatever is lost or taken or left to decay or rot, He can restore if it is His will. He can bring life to the dead. He can give spiritual and physical fulfillment. He can grant freedom and mercy for the persecuted and oppressed. He can open hearts and minds and invite justice to rein over corruption. And God has all authority to make right what has been wrong. He can set straight the path that needs to be followed.

God’s love and compassion cannot falter or weaken. God cannot back down from a challenge or opportunity. God will not quit on us or ever fully forsake us in our times of need. While we may never fully understand the nature of God or understand how God works with us, through us, or around us… be assured God is always working and is always present.
